In order to conduct a literature review, you must first identify a ‘burning issue/question’ that comes from your context of nursing practice. This issue may be inspired by a clinical problem, e.g. a concern that an aspect of paediatric nursing practice is not consistent with contemporary evidence; this could include a procedure, such as central venous access device (CVAD) dressing, or a problem, such as parental concerns regarding postoperative pain management in your ward, or it may be a professional issue, such as examining the success of your local preceptor program.
To assist you in the formation and presentation of your question, you will be required to utilise the PICO format; Population, Intervention, Comparison and Outcome (see 3.4 – theme 3), which you will submit with this assessment.
PICO format for developing a research question:
Define who or what the question is about, eg; age, gender, disease type, disease severity, or co-morbidity
Tip: describe a group of patients similar to yours
Define which intervention, test or exposure you are interested in;
o An intervention is a planned course of action.
o An exposure is something that happens such as a fall, anxiety, exposure to house dust mites, etc
Tip: describe what it is you are considering doing or what it is that has happened to the patient
Define the alternate intervention, if there is one
Tip: describe the alternative that can be compared with the intervention
Define the important outcomes, beneficial or harmful
Tip: define what you are hoping to achieve or avoid
It should include;
• An introduction presenting why the issue is important in your context of nursing
• What is currently known about the issue (in the literature)
• A synopis of the common themes found in your choice of literature (i.e.; themes discussed ‘in common’, or by all the articles)
• The findings from your preview of your chosen literature
• A conclusion that provides a brief answer to your question, and how this may impact nursing practice
2. Your research question , and the completed PICO table that you used to help format your question (see 3.4- theme 3)
3. A table of the key words utilised in your literature search (follow table 3.6 – theme 3)
4. A table of literature – presenting your 5 chosen articles, using the format provided in Appendix 2
Please note: Referencing for the abstract should be Vancouver style, this is the numbering system that links to the reference list at the bottom of the abstract (there are many examples on the internet). Your table of literature does not replace a reference list at the end of your abstract – this is because you may use additional references for your abstract, eg to explain background information, or to further expand the recommendations or relationship to nursing practice, so your abstract requires it’s own reference list.
